An email from my father

I sent my parents a link to this article in the Times, which includes a photo & brief blurb on my running team, and this was the response. His punctuation is like performance art. (p.s. I am not in the photo.)

RE: My running group

Kar, that looks like you in the center of the large photo, is it? if so, mom wants a copy of it.

When you talk about a half marathon are you talking about 13 miles? I can't believe it as that would be fantastic, unreal, amazing. That is a LONG DISTANCE. Are your knees up to it?, have you really thought this through? 

Fill us in on the details, I still can't believe it. Have you been running those kind of distances?

love, mom & dad G

I used to do the "Crasy Legs" in about 54 minutes, 5 miles, so figure 54 times 2 is 108 minutes for 10 miles, plus about 42 minutes for the last 3 miles, or a total of 150 minutes, or, 2 & a half hours for the entire run. That should be our goal for Kari's run. Go getem Kar Bear!!!!!!!! love, dad
